Prizzi's Honor

The Gist: Charley and Irene, a hit-man and a killer-for-hire, work for the mob, meet at a wedding, fall in love, and get married. He's like a son to the family's Don and she's unparalleled at her job. One day, their new assignments will put them in an untenable situation and difficult choices will have to be made.

Legendary director John Huston's acclaimed Prizzi's Honor is a comedy/thriller that keeps you guessing what will happen next.

Starring Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner, whose performances are top notch, it also features Angelica Huston, the director's daughter, in a scenery-chewing role.

The Bottom Line: This movie might not top many lists, but it's now become a classic of American cinema. The chemistry between Nicholson and Turner is reason enough to check it out.

Grade: 8
